I smeared SUGAR Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick Viola on my lips as soon as I discovered it in my fab bag January 2018. And since 3 days, this is the only lipstick I am wearing on my lips. Matte As Hell is my favorite range from SUGAR Cosmetics. I like the texture, shade collection & longevity of this range. I have already used Scarlet O Hara & Holy Golightly from the range. SUGAR keeps on releasing beautiful shades in this range and it’s really hard to resist.
How To Identify A Good Quality Matte Lipstick?
I am quite obsessed with lipsticks, specially matte ones. I have had my fair share of hits and fails of matte lipsticks. You want matte finish on your lips, that is just fine, but a matte lipstick does not need to dry out your lips or make you feel uneasy. A good quality matte lipstick has just the right amount of moisture in it to sooth your lips, create a protective layer on your lips and still look matte. I also hate the lipsticks that accentuates fine lines. Most of the matte lipsticks fails on this front. Well this flaw arises in case of lack of moisture. So there are few points that you must keep in mind while choosing your matte lipstick. Don’t fall just for a pretty shade.
Tip: If you matte lipstick lacks moisture, apply a layer of clear lip balm before applying the lipstick.
SUGAR Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick 07 Viola
Viola is a very pretty shade. It’s a mix of peach and brown which results in an everyday kind of shade. But after wearing the shade for few minutes the brown hue starts to take over. The lipstick shade changes to brownish from peachy-brown. The shade is suitable for all skin types.
Price & Packaging
This is a crayon lipstick hence comes in the form of sharpeable pencil. Honestly I am not a fan of this feature of the pencil. But somewhere you have to compromise. There is a color band at the bottom of the pencil to give you an idea of the shade of the pencil.
Fragrance & Texture
SUGAR Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick range is quite good in terms of moisture and it glides very smoothly & effortlessly on lips. The moisture content in the lipstick can be felt while applying it. Otherwise the lipstick would have demanded bit of pressure. With just a light hand, you can swipe the lipstick over your lips and you will be done.
There is almost no fragrance or taste to the product.
The range deserves an applause for the color pay off it offers. The rich and creamy formula gives nice pigmentation. Be it any shade from this range, light or dark, there is no compromise on the pigmentation front. Viola too is intensely pigmented. One swipe gives opaque finish.
The finish is undoubtedly matte the very moment you apply it. The formula is wonderful that without feeling drying on lips it gives matte finish. After few minutes the finish feels bit powdery but does not feel uncomfortable.
Good pigmentation of a lipstick results in long lasting performance. Viola too gives nice stay. It stays for 4-5 hours if I follow the standard way – Apply-Blot-Apply.
Here I conclude my review of Viola which is going to be my favorite shade for some time now. Which one is your favorite shade from SUGAR Matte As Hell range? Leave your comments, query & suggestions below.
